In the Middle Reading Challenge Conquered!

So, I finally finished my In the Middle Reading Challenge. If you remember, I started a while ago and I didn’t finish on time, but I was determined to finish it one way or another. The goal I set for myself as part of this challenge was to read at least 5 books that fell between 300 and 400 pages.

Books I read so far:

1. Cassie (Sunfire No. 14) by Vivian Schurfranz – 2.5 stars – 331 pages

2. Urban Gardening For Dummies by Paul Simon, Charlie Nardozzi, and the Editors of the National Gardening Association – 4 stars – 330 pages

3. African Myths and Tales edited with an introduction by Susan Feldmann (just noticed I forgot to put pages for this and I passed it on already – whoops! It was between 300 and 400 pages though)

4. Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger – 3 stars – 372 pages

5. 1001 People Who Made America by Alan Axelrod – 5 stars – 351 pages

I loved this book because I love history. If you haven’t noticed all the fun facts I’ve been posting on my Facebook page (sorry Facebook friends!), they came from this book. I loved all the short snippets and I feel like I really learned a lot. I enjoyed that it didn’t just cover people who had a positive influence on America, but also covered criminals, mob bosses, corrupt politicians, etc, that had a negative effect on this country. Truly every country (and person for that matter) is shaped by both their good and their bad experiences. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy history and I’ll be saving it for some inspiration of people I would like to learn more about. While there were many familiar names, there were certainly names I had never heard of before.

This challenge is now completed! I look forward to picking a new challenge soon.
